The annual Hospitality Action Christmas Online Auction opened for bids at 10am today. Now in its eleventh year, the auction is the easiest way to choose a unique Christmas gift for family and friends with just a click of a button. Last Christmas the online action raised £3,685 and with over 30 new lots on offer, hopes are high that this year a record sum will be raised for the charity.

All funds raised from the auction go to support those in need through the work of Hospitality Action, the hospitality industry’s benevolent organisation – something that’s especially important at this time of year.

Stuart Leckie, Director of Sales and Marketing at St Ermin’s Hotel and prize donor, says: “St. Ermin’s Hotel has supported Hospitality Action in a number of ways this year and we are delighted to donate a wonderful prize for the online auction this Christmas. It is always extremely popular and a great way to support the charity at this festive time of year.”

The lots on offer are sure to impress, with a great selection of gifts and experiences kindly donated by Hospitality Action’s supporters. Some of the fantastic gifts on offer include:
